An Spideog (The Robin)

This little Spideog is singing its heart out in my garden morning, noon and night and getting more friendly with each day,  it is difficult to say if it is a male or female, as both look identical. Spideog is Irish for Robin.

On Saturday morning at the market, I spotted some nice bouquets of dried lavender for sale.  
The bouquets brough to mind some photos that I had taken last summer
Busy bumble bees happily buzzing around pollinating the lavender

The Tortoiseshell butterflies almost queuing up to get at it 

Even the Large White butterfly, often referred to as the Cabbage White, abandoned the cabbage patch for the lavender  
The peacock too was very interested in the it, not for any good reason, only to eat the butterflies
And this little lady I thought might be nice here, but I'm afraid she doesn't look too happy.

Harry the Heron

For a few years now, this heron is attracted to my garden pond. I call him Harry, he usually visits early in the morning .  Yesterday, I heard his harsh high pitched sound, out I went with my camera, and right enough, there he was, walking along the roof .
 Harry looking happy and content and getting ready to settle down.
I wondered if he was just nodding off or hanging his head in shame after eating all my goldfish, again.
